The number 1 mistake migrating to Single Touch Payroll
Many companies rely on their payroll provider and software to make sure their employee’s pay calculations are correct, only to find out that their payroll system relies on them for data accuracy:
Incorrect Data In, Incorrect Payments Out…
Some sorely find out that they may be liable for costly backpays and possible penalties, accumulating up to 6-years in backpay.
A “YouGov” Galaxy survey of 517 business owners required to comply with the new regulation has found 70% have no idea what’s ahead of them and more than half (55%) have “little knowledge” about how to become compliant. (SmartCompany April 16 2019)
To avoid any penalties for non-compliance – It’s now time for companies to Be aware, Be Prepared and Be Proactive and to have your payroll checked to ensure your employees pay is correct.
Ask Yourself These Quick Questions
In the last 12-months have I checked and reviewed our:
- Workplace awards that apply to our various staff
- Employee award classifications and pay levels
- Allowances are correct and if they are still covered within the agreed rate of pay
- Employment status – are our casuals still seen as casuals by Fair Work, and do our part time workers have their days and hours written into an agreement
- Contractors under the ATO & Fair Work tests for sham contracting
If you are unsure about any of these or would like the chance to double check, now is the time!
